  • The palace is a little north of the Church of San Luigi de Francesi (Caravaggio Church). There is not a large street facing, you may not notice the palace and walking normally. It is a splendid inside.

  • Is the baldassini Palace is a short distance away to Colonna square from the Neptune fountain in the Piazza Navona. That was built in the 16th century and is looks small, we feel a subdued atmosphere. It is one of Rome's Palazzo is everywhere you look.

  • Palazzo Baldassini, the work of Antonio da Sangallo the younger, now seat of the Istituto Luigi Sturzo, houses frescoes by the school of Raphael: Perin del Vaga and Polidoro da Caravaggio, Giovanni da Udine. It was built between 1516-1519 about at the behest of the jurist Melchiorre Baldassini designed by Antonio da Sangallo the younger. The three-story building has a courtyard that opens from the side of the counter on the first floor in a lodge. In the West Wing of the ground floor, inside the so-called Sala Giovanni da Udine, grotesque decorations can be admired. From the staircase leads to the first floor loggia. Here two representative areas follow: first Council Hall frescoed by a pictorial frieze in tiles of Polidoro da Caravaggio; follows the Salon of Perin del Vaga, where the remains of paintings are based on two registers framed by a score of architectural illusion. The main floor is the bedroom of the Baldassini, adorned with a frieze of acanthus scrolls.
